It is important to pay attention to our hopes and dreams, no matter what age we are. Life can be very uninteresting if we don't have any goals. Goals give us motivation and an increased sense of purpose. Just as we wouldn't set out on a vacation without a destination, we need to set a goal to know where we're going. But what if we have many goals, and feel overwhelmed by trying to reach all of them? The secret lies in tackling one at a time.
